Welcome to Plum Camping at May Tree Orchard

Get close to nature with your own tent and equipment.  Come with friends or on your own, for a night or longer.  We will always keep numbers camping to a 30 person maximum, so there will be plenty of space for everyone.

Shepherds Hut

Open your eyes in the morning to enjoy wonderful orchard views from your comfortable king-size bed in our hand-made shepherds hut. As well as your bed, the hut is furnished with a futon sofa, desk and chair.  The sun powers the lighting and USB charge points inside.  You’ll have a sheltered outdoor kitchen with 2 ring gas burner, a cooler with freezer blocks and a washing up area with sink and cold tap, for your sole use.  A garden table and chairs are also provided.

Eriba caravan

Get cosy with the Eriba’s iconic retro design. Complete with vintage-style canvas awning, the caravan features a king-size bed, with indoor seating and table for two.  It is possible to transform the indoor seating into a small extra single bed.  The Eriba has a 3-ring gas hob and a fridge, and is fully equipped for cooking.  An outdoor table and 2 chairs are provided.
